So my regulator for the CO2 tank has officially gone screwy. It bled CO2 at a reasonably high psi into the keg for about 5 weeks, AFTER it was finished carbing (I know, I should have at least taken it off the line, but my ghetto force carb methods leave me needing a pressure boost once in a while.)
The problem I have now, while I wait for my new regulator, is that the foam is actually out of control. How out of control you ask? When I try to bleed some of the gas from the keg through the poppet, foam/beer sprays out everywhere.
This wouldn't bother me is my beer poured wasn't 99.99% foam EVERYTIME. Look, I admit, I am no keg scientist here. In fact, I have always been pretty liberal with my kegging, so long as I got yummy beer in which the foam eventually subsided. Not the case this time.
As I write this, my gas is off and disconnected from the keg and I haven't touched it in the past 48 hours except for trying one pour (foam) and one try at bleeding gas out (see: everywhere, foam).
I swear I will reform my kegging ways, but I need help to fix this one first!
